Measure ingredients for dough and place in bread machine pan in order recommended by manufacturer. Select Dough Cycle. Remove dough from pan and place on floured surface. Cover and let rest 15 minutes. Roll dough into a rectangle, about 25 x 38 cm (10 x 15 inches). Spread margarine or butter over dough to within 2.5 cm (1 inch) of the edges. Sprinkle sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (if desired) evenly over dough. Roll up dough tightly on long side. Press edges to seal and form into a 30 cm (12 inch) long, evenly shaped roll. Cut roll into 1.5 cm (1 inch) pieces. Place rolls onto a greased 22 x 33 cm (9 x 13 inch) pan. Cover and let rise until double in volume, about 30 to 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F) for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool in pan 10 to 14 minutes. Drizzle with icing sugar glaze. Cut apart and remove from pan.
